Default Helo Hunt

So I talked with the lady at the Willis Creek Park Gate today.. She said the helo hunt killed 126 hogs and 6 coyotes. Also said they saw a +400 lbs hog out in the pasture area below the dam. Both the pilot and the "sniper" said it was over 400 and it looked like a bear running through the area.

Also found a stand and a gravity feeder in the area was in today. Interesting set up location for both. Dont know who's it is as unmarked, but sure its been there much longer than the allowed 3 days.

Good luck to everyone these next few weeks/months, whether you're slinging arrows or casting a line.

Thinking about going to Granger this weekend to do some hog hunting. Any advice on where to go? Would it be worth putting a feeder out there or is there a good chance it will get stolen?

Pick a spot, and go. Put some miles in. You'll find them. Those pigs got plenty to eat.

We put some miles in down there two weekends ago. We ended up seeing to lone boars. They didn't want to get shot though. That and the wife ain't too stealthy in the brush.

Is there anything other than a public hunting permit and a license that you need to hunt out there with a bow?

That's where you are wrong! You will hardly ever see a pig after first light at granger and especially by circleville....only hunt the last 30 min b4 dark and get the Heck away from high pressured circleville bridge...I have never seen a hog on that side of the river in my life...other side of rr bridge on that small patch under bridge. Yes

Was out in Granger this evening. 5th time out there. 2nd time seeing hogs. Of course, they were just out of range, and then ran into the thick woods. I never had a clear shot. Though, I haven't bagged one yet, this was a success. I have slowly been figuring out where to go, and what time to be there. After seeing what looked like a 150 lb hog, I am returning to the same spot for sure!
